JW Marriott Brickell vs W Brickell for weekend in Miami (want to stay closer to downtown than the Beach)
In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people
Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe!
Almost 4 weeks in and my status is still wrong. It was correct for the first ~1 day and then bumped down a level. Shouldn’t be hard as all my nights last year were SPG. This is ridiculous.
Amex Platinum airline fee credit for United: any chance I can somehow get any credits without flying for the rest of the year? Not sure if booking flights for next year would work (need to travel in winter/spring, but it’ll be in 2021).

तेरे चले जाने का,
तुमको ना पाने का,
अकेला हो जाने का,
गम से ना उभर पाने का,
इस गम अपने अंदर दबाने का,
वक्त रहते सच ना देख पाने का,
पर सकून है.....
तेरे खुश हो जाने का,
धन दौलत का ख्वाब पाने का,
मेरी तरह गमों में ना बह जाने का,
अब travel वाले अरमानों का गला नहीं घोटते होगे,
Pretty dress को लेने से पहले प्राइस price tag नहीं देखते होगे,
Latest iPhone सबको दिखा के खूब फेंकते होगे,
Luxary staycations पे अच्छी धूप सेकते होगे,
आशा करता हूं......
Best steamer - hand held / travel friendly?
At some points, I feel I am becoming a problem magnet 🧲. Anything I touch or get involved in, tun into a nightmare despite doing my best not to screw up. I was a top performer a few months ago, and now I am a team blocker. I feel it so hard to disappoint people around me whom I respect a lot. Helpless 😞😞😞
Any suggestions on jobs where I can travel a lot and now to break in. Currently in finance and feel bored drained etc
Anyone ever had your Bonvoy Ambassador secure an upgrade for you after your SNAs were denied?
Any thoughts on Sidley's London office? How sharp elbowed are the associates and how much do partners genuinely try and help you develop a career? Bonus points if you can provide insight on how the corporate and finance departments work with specialists on transactional matters. As a final ask, are they genuinely into D&I and flexible working efforts or is this predominantly lip service? Thanks in advance!

I was promoted to manager in Jan but received an offer with a 35% salary increase and much cheaper health insurance outside the firm. I am 85% sure I’ll take the offer, but wanted to see if anyone could think of acting I may be missing out on by leaving? FYI my inflation increase was larger than my promotion increase and my student loan payments also were stopped since I’m no longer an SA. I think what is holding me back is my guilt for my immediate team but just want to check.
I have a doubt there is a component in variable pay where one part of variable pay is paid every month in HCL, so do they pay in full that amount? HCL Technologies Please help. And on an average how much percentage they pay other part of variable which is paid annually? Thanks in advance
Hi! I have about 2 years experience as an account manager at CDW. I am looking to make a change into the big 5 - Amazon, Google, Microsoft, Apple and Meta.

Joining Accenture as a lateral MD next month. Any inputs on how to build network and connect with fellow MDs, especially in a remote setup? Are people open to collaborate with “outsiders” at a senior level, or should I expect friction with people protecting their turf and sticking to their own connections? How is the work culture like at MD level? For context, I will join strat and consulting.

Resume question that I struggle to answer. If someone has been working for ~20 years and has worked at a number of companies during that time (let’s say 10 for the sake of this example), the resume becomes way too long. Is it okay to remove the 1st couple of jobs that were held after college even if relevant? Or maybe delete a job or 2 if they aren’t 100% relevant to the rest of the person’s career? Final option is to leave names of companies (and titles) of early roles but delete the content.
Serious question though: what would it take to make a secession happen? Can there be a referendum or something? It’s clear that the country is so divided that I don’t know if it makes any sense to keep the union.

Does @redhat provide any shift allowance? Any other wfh allowance that company provides for permanent work from home roles? Redhat Tata Consultancy Tech Mahindra Accenture Infosys
Firm is keeping my compensation as-is and not giving me the lock-step increase I am supposed to be getting … hours are excellent and work product is great, feels like total BS to me based on feedback from both of my reviews. I am definitely being scummed.
I applied few weeks ago to Moon Active’s QA bootcamp. Received a decline. I reapplied few weeks later while adding a personal note describing that I started taking few relevant Udemy courses. For my second application. And at the same time I messaged a link on LinkedIn and emailed a lead in HR department. But for my second time I didn’t receive any message. Was I marked by the company? Is it unacceptable to reapply for a job you’re dreaming about ? Is there anything to do now?
I got laid off with no warning. Reason given was my utilization was low at 81.8%. No performance problems. Would it be inappropriate for me to apply back to PwC to the teams I discussed rolling onto?
